"Great Gift!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this item as a birthday gift for a dear friend. The picture does not do justice to it as the blue covering is vibrant and the leaf pattern quite striking. Even the gift wrapping was a work of art, so much so that my friend took a picture of it before opening the present. Needless to say that she loved the gift! Compliments to the artisan!

I bought this as a gift for someone who enjoys writing. The two journals are perfect! One is small enough for her purse and the other large enough to use as her journal. Very, very pretty.

"Absolutely beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Exquisitely crafted. Perfect to the the last detail. They are a bit brighter blue than they appear in the on-line picture, but that actually enhances their beauty. I purchased a set for myself and one for a gift, but will buy more for the rest of my sisters and their grand-babies. Truely a treasure to keep forever. Highly recommended!

"Very pretty natural leaf journals in great colors."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I really like the fact that this artisan uses so many natural materials, from rice straw paper to covers made of banana bark fiber. These two journals are decorated with kapu-kapu leaves and the veins of the leaves are very pretty. Of all his journals I think these are my favorites because I love the orange and yellow colors! Very pretty.

Best Uses

  • Give as gifts; buy lots of them to mix and match!
